You can also spot black-crowned night herons in the garden. A small museum inside the shrine features Takeda Shingen’s weapons, armor, colorful battle standards, and other personal belongings. You can also see Kamakura-period sword, listed as a national treasure, on display at the shrine, which sits eight minutes from Kofu station by bus or taxi.

  • Celebrated new year here by tradition. Very nice traditional temple with spirit. Also Nice View From Here On The City.  more »
  • In April last year, visited the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Cherry Blossom Kofu station followed by trees about 2 km is known for cherry blossoms. Azalea-live in the Nagasaki Museum Takeda Shingen trail, surrounded by great moats and earthworks. Faith and win them the game of God say, are more and more foreign tourists. The old well that was used as the baby was born the daughter of Takeda Shingen "white well" and is known as a power spot. You can buy plastic bottles can be water, will come to the Ryoko Takeda at the shrine.

  • lots of cherry trees along day from Kofu station. its a good 30 min walk up the hill but its really nice in spring. there is a nice view from the gate downhill (a cherry tree avenue) and across the city.
  • Beautiful shrine and surrounding area. Nice to walk around and take lots of photos!
  • Well kept, ample spaces to walk around, beautiful cherry trees.
  • 100 next meijo Takeda's Studio. Near the souvenir shops and vibrant feel. Former Samurai and lives in modern I think... is amazing. Cool nokyo-sho book. 100 meijo stamps are managed here.

  • Is about 500 years ago, in this area to ensure he was being enshrined. And think of the mountains of this Kai was he looking at absolutely and deeply. It is a shrine to enshrine the hero Takeda Shingen, the shrine itself was very nice. Got the impression is visited during the week, many of you visit the revered as the hometown pride.
